Voting: Off the Block 2020 Men’s VolleyGov Elections

The time has come to cast a ballot and determine the best current college men’s volleyball player in each state.

Voting begins today for the Off the Block 2020 Men’s VolleyGov Elections.

The VolleyGov Elections recognize the top current college men’s volleyball players from each state and give fans the opportunity to decide the best players through voting on the Off the Block website. Players considered for a VolleyGov must be on a team’s current roster and are only eligible for the election race of the state where their hometown is located.

Each NCAA Division I-II men’s volleyball conference — Big West, ConfCarolinas, EIVA, MIVA and MPSF — along with the group independent teams will have one player on the ballot for each state’s VolleyGov race. In addition, one player from NCAA Division III men’s volleyball teams and one player from NAIA men’s volleyball teams will be included on the state ballots.

Conferences that did not have a player from a state were omitted from that specific ballot.

Off the Block determined every player on the ballots using a variety of factors, including national honors and the player’s college performance in recent seasons.

Voting in the VolleyGov Elections will conclude at 10 p.m. (CST) Monday. All voting will take place on the Off the Block website and individuals will be limited to voting once per day.

Below are all 48 of the VolleyGov ballots.

  1. The voting was supposed to stop at 10CST but votes were still calculating well after that. Just curious why voting continued.
